Reed aspired to be a country singer at a young age however, because of his parents separating, he was forced to live in foster homes along with his sister. Eventually, he was reunited with his mother in 1944. While in high school, he was already known for singing and for writing music, gaining the attention of Bill Lowery which led to his first record entitled “If the Good Lord’s Willing and the Creek Don’t Rise”. He was signed to Capitol Records, but wasn’t noticed until Gene Vincent covered his song “Crazy Legs”. In 1958, he was signed to the National Recording Corporation, for which he would perform with other artists such as Ray Stevens and Joe South, establishing his net worth.

In 1959, Reed’s song “Soldier’s Joy” made it to the Billboard “Bubbling Under the Top 100”. Afterwards, he would serve for two years in the United States Army before returning to Nashville to continue his music career. While serving in the army, his songs continued to gain popularity, thanks partly to Brenda Lee’s cover of his song “That’s All You Got to Do”. In 1962, he had two successful singles entitled “Goodnight Irene” and “Hully, Gully Guitar”. In 1967, he would break through the country charts with the song “Guitar Man” which Elvis Presley would eventually cover. He then worked on the song “Tupelo Mississippi Flash” which became his first Top 20 hit. Reed became the guitarist for Elvis’ version of “Guitar Man” and another song “Big Boss Man”, and the two would continue to work together for several more songs, helping boost Jerry’s net worth

Reed released the song “Amos Moses” in 1970, and it reached the eighth spot of the US pop Charts. He then worked with Chet Atkins for the LP “Me & Jerry”, and the following year, he released his biggest hit called “When You’re Hot, You’re Hot”, which became the title track of his first solo album and it would be awarded a gold disc by the RIAA. He continued making Top 40 singles in the next few years, and was also rewarded with the title of Certified Guitar Player by Chet Atkins. During this time he was also making regular appearances on “The Glen Campbell Good Time Hour”, which increased his exposure and added to his net worth.

In the mid-1970s, Reed started to focus more on acting and appeared in films such as “W.W. and the Dixie Dancekings” , “Gator”, “High-Ballin’” and “Hot Stuff”. Hr still recorded songs but mostly for the films he was a part of, and he also made guest appearances in the sitcom “Alice”. In 1982, he released the chart topper “She Got the Goldmine (I Got the Shaft)” and was followed by “The Bird” which reached the second spot of the charts. He continued making films while releasing songs which revitalized his music career. He then appeared in “The Survivors” and later collaborated with Atkins once more for “Sneakin Around”. He was also a part of “The Waterboy” and “Bill Dance Outdoors”.

For his personal life, it is known that Jerry passed away in 2008 due to complications from emphysema. He married Priscilla Mitchell in 1959, and she passed away in 2014; they had two daughters.

#Fact
1 Has said he has stopped making movies to focus on his music career and has released several albums. [August 2006]
2 The Country Music Association named Reed musician of the year in 1970 and 1971.
3 The son of cotton mill workers, he began playing the guitar in elementary school, later graduating to nightclubs and bars in and around the Atlanta area while in his teens. He dropped out of high school to tour with country legends Ernest Tubb and Faron Young, and at age 17 signed his first recording contract with Capitol Records.
4 Usually the good 'ol boy type, he played heavies twice in films. He was a sleazy, ornery moonshiner in actor/director 'Burt Reynolds'' film Gator (1976) and a hateful coach in Adam Sandler's The Waterboy (1998).
5 Friend Burt Reynolds gave Jerry Reed a bright shiny black 1977 Pontiac Trans Am Limited Edition model, just like the one(s) that were used in the theatrical Smokey and the Bandit movies.
6 Won two Grammys in the early 1970s. One was for his hit single "When You're Hot You're Hot" (1971) and the other he shared with Chet Atkins for their collaboration "Me and Jerry" (1970). A third Grammy came in 1992 for his album "Sneakin' Around" with Atkins. His song "Amos Moses" earned him a 1971 Grammy nomination for "best male country vocal performance".
7 Elvis Presley recorded two of Reed's early songs -- "U.S. Male" and "Guitar Man" with Jerry playing his distinctive "claw-style" licks on the studio recordings. Jerry later was dubbed "The Guitar Man".
8 A popular session and tour guitarist who played with the likes of Chet Atkins, Joan Baez and Ringo Starr.
9 Released more than 40 albums over a long career that started with his first record at the age of 18.
10 His final project, "The Gallant Few," was an album made to raise funds for wounded veterans.

12 Inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2005.
13 Had quadruple heart bypass surgery in June, 1999.
14 Covered the song "Sugarfoot Rag" by Hank Garland, for his album " Texas Bound and Flyin'" (1980)
15 In the mid-to-late 1970s, he was set to play the starring role as the legendary guitar player Hank Garland in a film titled Sugarfoot Rag (1970). The film was about the amazing life and career of the top Nashville guitar player, Hank Garland, and was to deal with the mysterious circumstances behind his career ending automobile accident. Unfortunately, the film project fell apart for unknown reasons.
16 His hit, "The Bird," includes impressions of Willie Nelson's "Whiskey River" and "On the Road Again"; and George Jones' "He Stopped Loving Her Today."
17 In the fade-out of both "When You're Hot, You're Hot" and "She Got the Gold Mine (I Got the Shaft)," Reed can be heard complaining, "Contempt of court?"
18 Best known for his comedy hits, including the Billboard magazine country No. 1 hits "When You're Hot, You're Hot" (1971), "Lord, Mr. Ford" (1973) and "She Got the Gold Mine (I Got the Shaft)" (1982); and the No. 2 hit "The Bird." Also had a No. 2 country hit with "East Bound and Down" (1977).
19 Country singer and guitarist.
20 Graduated from high school in Atlanta, Georgia in 1955
21 Born at 4:56am-CST

#Quote
1 I used to watch people like Richard Burton and Mel Gibson and think, 'I could never do that.' When people ask me what my motivation is, I have a simple answer: money. -- JR, regarding his acting ability
2 Talking about Gene Hackman in Bat*21 (1988): "He don't act. He just shows up and he 'be's."
